Well, All those wanting parts for their 2012 like turn signal mirrors will soon be able to aquire them..
I bet hundreds of 2012s will be totalled by flood damage from hurricane Sandy out East.

I didn't even think about that! That's pretty cool / horrible.

I was looking at salvage cars about a month ago when I was considering re-writing MFT... I just don't have the space to put a totaled car anywhere.

Holy crap that is terrible... Really not what our country needs right now, but hey, we've pulled through before, and we will again.

Heres how to tell if a car has been flood damaged

Sandy wrecked shop, damn. I feel for those having to deal with the mess left behind. The link to the weather photos are humbling to say the least.

I saw this and was like well.. that's one way to sink a fleet.. of taxis.
What sucks more is those are brand new 2011s they stashed away since the Crown Vics stopped production
